Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory

Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory ★★★★½

What’s not to like? The production design is incredible, the humor is surprisingly dark, and Gene Wilder brings it all together. He’s just sinister enough to give the movie some bite without ever being creepy or off-putting. There’s a reason we remember this performance rather than the legions who have won Oscars.
